The Texas Education Agency released its 2017-18 accountability ratings for school districts across the state Wednesday.
Because Hurricane Harvey affected the district last year, Fort Bend ISD did not receive an overall rating or grade. Here is how the district ranked in each domain:
Student Achievement: B
This rating is based on how much students know and are able to do at the end of the school year. FBISD earned 89 of 100 possible points.
School Progress: B
This rating is based on how students perform over time, comparing their progress to similar schools. FBISD earned 84 of 100 possible points.
Closing the Gaps: B
This rating is based on the performance of different populations of students. FBISD earned 89 of 100 possible points.
Overall grades for campuses are calculated based on the school’s performance in three domains: Student Achievement, School Progress and Closing the Gaps, TEA officials said. TEA takes the higher score provided between Student Achievement—which factors in STAAR tests, SAT scores and other college and career readiness variables—and Student Progress, which examines how students perform compared to the previous year.
The agency then factors in what performance gaps exist between different groups within the Closing the Gaps domain, which considers the ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds of students as well as economically disadvantaged numbers and other factors.
